The Year of Less: How I Stopped Shopping, Gave Away My Belongings, and Discovered Life Is Worth More Than Anything You Can Buy in a Store

@CaitFlanders’ THE YEAR OF LESS has hit the Wall Street Journal #Bestsellers List! https://www.amazon.com/Year-Less-Shopping-Belongings-Discovered/dp/1401954871

The Year of Less In her late twenties, Cait Flanders found herself stuck in the consumerism cycle that grips so many of us: earn more, buy more, want more, rinse, repeat. Even after she worked her way out of nearly $30,000 of consumer debt, her old habits took hold again. When she realized t...

Before You Get a Lecture Agent: How to Get Paid For Speaking - Lucinda Literary

Our new blog post outlines a few best practices for getting paid lecture gigs entirely on your own:

For many authors, speaking can be a key avenue to selling books as well as a lucrative side hustle. But a common misconception is that having a lecture agent is the only way to obtain paid speaking opportunities. We routinely receive queries from authors seeking lecture representation, but who might...

We wrote this post to remove some of the mystique around the book submission process, addressing questions such as: what to do while waiting to hear from publishers? when to follow up? and what can help my chances?

We hope you find it useful.

Congratulations to Peter Heller, whose book THE WHALE WARRIORS has been chosen to be the read of the month at Hudson Booksellers. Save 40% and pick up a copy at any airport locations today!

The Whale Warriors is a fantastic and important book, and remains one of my all-time favorites. It’s an adventure tale to rival any other for daring and lunacy, about a ship that flies the Jolly Roger, sailing the dangerous seas of international politics, with a crew willing to die for their beliefs. It’s an eloquent travelogue and celebration of nature at her grandest and most intimate, and an execration of our wanton destruction of the oceanic ecosystem. At its center lies the tragic torture and killing of the world’s most amazing animals - whales that carry some of the symbolic weight of Moby Dick - and a captain (Paul Watson, founder of Sea Shepherd) who bears more than a slight resemblance to an anti-Ahab. In the ten years since The Whale Warriors was published, Sea Shepherd has become a major global force for conservation, in a battle whose stakes have only intensified. As Heller says in his new afterword, “If [Watson] was notorious when I first met him, he was legendary now.” With career-spanning coverage of life and sports on and in the water, with his role in The Cove (Heller was one of 5 surfers who paddled into the cove when a pod of pilot whales was being slaughtered and his footage can be seen in the movie), and with this masterful account of Watson and Sea Shepherd, Peter Heller has played a powerful role of his own in advocating for life in the seas. -Sara, Atlanta
